Laurence Lau Returns to All My Children!

Add another old-timer to the list of returnees to Pine Valley this spring.
Soaps.com has learned that Laurence Lau, ex-Greg Nelson will return to All My Children in May! We understand that his return will only last a few episodes.
Greg was last seen in Pine Valley in 1986, soon after the death of fiancée Jenny Gardner. Greg had been targeted for death by another of Jenny’s suitors but Jenny was accidentally killed instead of Greg. Unable to remain in Pine Valley, Greg moved from Pine Valley so he could get on with his life.
His storyline will pick up when he returns to town to see Jesse and Angie.
Rumor has it that Greg's storyline will impact Jesse, Angie and even Tad in a way that none had ever imagined. Just what that means remains to be seen, but with the return of Dixie (in ghostly form) and the return of Greg it appears that May sweeps will be dramatic indeed!
Since leaving AMC,
Laurence has been no stranger to daytime television. He played the popular Jamie Frame on Another World for several years and from 2001 - 2003 played Sam Rappaport on One Life To Live. He has also guest-starred on several prime time dramas like "Law & Order", "JAG" and "Diagnosis Murder".
Word that Laurence would reprise the role of Greg and with Jesse's return from the dead, many fans are wondering if that means the show could bring Jenny back from the dead, too. That remains to be seen, but is unlikely since Kim Delaney, ex-Jenny, is starring in the Lifetime television show "Army Wives". However, we never say never here at Soaps.com. Daytime television is known for bringing characters back from the dead - and recasting characters, too.
We welcome Laurence back to the Pine Valley fold. His episodes will begin airing on May 20.
